Slip & Fall Injury Claims in Louisiana: Get the Compensation You Deserve

Such hazards are the responsibility of the property owner or manager to address. They are expected to remedy such hazards promptly or provide warnings to those who visit the premises until the unsafe condition can be repaired. Visitors can include patrons, clients, customers, and other invitees as well as service providers to the property, such as technical and trade repairmen, for example. 

What Types of Properties are Subject to Personal Injury Law?

All public and private premises are subject to premises liability law. 

These can include but are not limited to:

  • Retail shops and stores
  • Sidewalks and public parks
  • Hotels and motels
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Private homes and apartments
  • Nursing homes and care facilities
  • Parking lots and garages
  • Government buildings
  • Schools, daycare facilities, colleges, and universities
  • Malls
  • Sports arenas and entertainment venues
  • Office buildings

Property owners and managers need to take sufficient steps to prevent slip and fall accidents and to promptly address any hazards that may arise.

Slip and fall claims and lawsuits can be filed against negligent property owners. However, if the hazard was open and obvious, liability may be in question under rulings by the Louisiana Supreme Court. It is always to your benefit to consult with a premises liability lawyer at our firm to determine your standing and options in any slip and fall injury matter.

Like other personal injury cases, you may be entitled to the following, depending on the circumstances of your case:

  • Medical costs incurred and cost of future medical care
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost income/wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

In Louisiana, you have one year from the date of your slip and fall injury to file a claim.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Will I need to pay any money upfront to get my personal injury started?

    No, you will not need any money to get your case started or to initially meet with an attorney. We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid unless you recover money.

  • What is a deposition?

    A deposition is a statement given under oath, usually done in a lawyer’s office before a court reporter. Witnesses called to testify in a deposition answer questions posed by attorneys representing both parties in a case. The court reporter produces a written transcript of everything said at the deposition and the witness can read and sign the transcript, swearing it to be an accurate rendition of the testimony given under oath.

  • What documents should I bring with me when I meet with a lawyer?

    The more information you are able to gather for your attorney, the easier it will be for your attorney to determine whether your claim will be successful. You should supply any documents that might have a bearing on your case, including, but not limited to, collision reports, photographs and medical records. If you have not collected any documents, do not worry because your lawyer will be able to obtain them.
